  • Ok, update on the availability of parts! After waiting 7 weeks my parts arrived! The problems have been worked out with GM and their suppliers. After talking to the parts department at my dealership they told me that the backlog is clearing (I get the full line because my son is an asst. manager of the department). If anyone is waiting for parts out there, hang tight because the orders are being filled in the order they were placed.

    Please note the way GM organization is in disarray, I would rather wait for the easter bunny,or Tooth Fairy,or maybe Santa Claus.I've gotten so many stories from GM but very little action. Why don't all buyers of the Chevy equinox find Mr. Wagonner,get some of th 8.5. million dOLLARS back he left so that me may fix your vehicle. PROMISES!!!! PROMISES!!! PROMISES!!!

    This shows that type of this vehicle is.Chevy and Gm will tell you anything,tell you dealer your vehicle you burn more oil than gas in a insulting way. Also get a hold of the NTSA- in dc.Also file a Lemon charge with the F TC>>we bailed Gm out,now Gm needs to step up to the plate and fix out vehicles for free. Also get a hold of your Local Senator and or Representative and give him an ear full!!!

    AGAIN,GM-CHEVY HAS MANY DESIGN FLAWS IN THIS VEHICLE AND GM KNEW THIS.PLEASE CONTACT THE NTHSB AND THE FTC AND FILE A FORMAL COMPLAINT UNDER THE AUTOMOBILE STATUE,THE MORE THAT FILE,THE MORE VOICE WE WILL HAVE AGAINST GM-CHEVY LEMON OX

    Why not go into your profile and make your email public so we can all really tell you what we think as this site is PG. I sure hope your next car is twice what your Equinox is......................that is twice as bad :P :P ;) ;)

    Heh - funny! Not very nice, but funny.

    I wonder if there is an ignore function on this site? :shades: That way we wouldn't have to be bothered by the caps and repeats. :confuse:

    I'm waiting for my dealer to actually get some of the 2010 models and keep them longer than a day so I can test drive one!

    They do seem to be selling pretty well, which I take as a good sign. Lots of good reviews.

    I've driven 2 of them both AWD, one a 4 and the other a LTZ with the 6. Both had outstanding feel of quality and a top of the line feel when sitting in it. Plus these are early production cars and they looked great.
  • tazzitazzi Posts: 23
    If I get one, it will be the LT2 AWD with a 4 engine. How was the power? I live in the foothills and am curious to see how it will do on the inclines. And on the drive to Lake Tahoe :D

    I've narrowed my options down to the Equinox and the Forrester. Still need to test drive them both and compare but have been waiting for the C4C program. Also curious to see if the manufacturer's add any extra incentives. I'm probably looking at buying in September unless the vouchers start running out, then I'll buy in August.

    Power is in the eyes of the beholder. That is the reason I drove the 6 as I feel in AWD it is under powered for hills etc. But there have been a couple others here who were happy with it. The thing I didn't like was at a steady driving speed when I let off the gas it felt like I was downshift maybe a 1/2 gear as instead of coasting like other cars I have driven including the V6 version AWD it slowed down. To me that was a big minus. Can't help with MPG much doing that and I just didn't like it. Maybe it was a fluke with that vehicle. Also I still don't care about the remote. You push a button that sticks out from the side and the key pops out. It isn't a whole key just the part that goes into the ign. switch. I can just see it poping out in my pocket and either polking me or tearing a hole in my pocket over time. It just wasn't well though out.

    Hello looking to purchase a 2010 Chevy Equinox LTZ V6 in New Jersey have a few internet quotes MSRP approx 36,900 quotes are at $33,000 before taxes and fees. Anyone have any input as to how much lower they can go?

    I posted a GMS price on one of these Equinox Edmunds Forums about a week ago. Look it up and you should be able to come pretty close. The GMS price is a little cheaper than the dealer pays but he does get a rebate on the units he sells at the end of the year which would put it cheaper than GMS.
  • vcontivconti Posts: 4
    Thanks found it $31,931.43 Can you tell me what the GMS price is?
  • dmathews3dmathews3 Posts: 1,739
    GMS is usually only for GM employees. It is a little bit below the invoice price the dealer gets but in these trying times there are dealers who are willing to sell at this price to anyone. There has also been a couple times that GM has extended this price to the general public. The dealers invoice will show this price. Being that this is a brand new vehicle that seems to have a lot of people wanting them I don't know how close you can come but at least it gives you something to shoot for. Also remember that the dealer gets a rebate of I hear 3% on all vehicles he sells at either the end of the year or quarterly. So if he sells it to you at his cost he still will get money on it at some point. Also we have to remember, he is in business to make money, not lose money as he has a lot of employees depending on him so offer him a fair price and go from there. Remember one more thing you can buy from any dealer and still take it to your neighborhood dealer for work but don't expect him to step up to the plate and fight for you if something questionable comes up since he will remember you bought elsewhere.

    My Equinox has 33,000 miles and still on the original tires "Bridgestone Dueler".
    How many miles did you do with your originals?
  • sgr5516sgr5516 Posts: 156
    We replaced the original tires on our 2005 Equinox at 54,100 miles.
  • laserbluelaserblue Posts: 313
    Why don't all the Equinox come with the same size of tires?
    What are the advantages of getting the 18's or 17's tires option rather than the 16 inches?
  • dmathews3dmathews3 Posts: 1,739
    Why don't all Equinox come in just one color. Answer that and you will have answered your own question.
